Greek Curiosity
CCIV 116
Fall 2007 not offered

Aristotle wrote that all human beings naturally desire knowledge. In this class we will study how the ancient Greeks sought to explore, comprehend, explain, and predict their world. From Odysseus, the archetype of the curious Greek, to the systematic inquiries of Aristotle, we will read literature in which Greek intellectual curiosity is on display - including epic poetry, history, tragedy, science, and philosophy. No familiarity with the set authors is expected, only a desire to learn.
